Tennessee Justice Center lands $300K grant

The Tennessee Justice Center has received a $300,000 three-year grant from the Baptist Healing Trust.

The grant is part of BHT's third quarter grants, which totaled $1.2 million to 22 Middle Tennessee organizations. For a full list, click here.

"We are proud of our mission to support the important work that nonprofits do in our community to provide compassionate care," Cathy Self, BHT president and CEO, said in a release. "We have wonderful nonprofit organizations that deliver health care and dental care, recovery and homeless services, and provide support and safe places for people who have been abused."

The Tennessee Justice Center is an advocacy firm for low-income Tennesseans. Most recently, it has been significantly involved in the push to expand Medicaid for Tennesseans under 128 percent of the poverty level as part of Gov. Bill Haslam's Insure Tennessee proposal, which failed to pass in the legislature twice this year.
